Last September I stood nervously at the school gates waiting for them to open for Little Man’s first day at preschool. He was nervous about starting somewhere new. I was nervous about whether I had made the right decision about moving him from the nursery he had been in from 10 months old to a new place. There was new routines to learn and a much more school like environment for him to get his head round. Dealing with change was not his strong point. As a family we had not had the easiest couple of months and all of… View Post

This is a thank you to the person that let me fully share and didn’t just stare. This is a thank you to the person that stood, by my side on the day that she died. This is a thank you to the person who stood by the incubator, cried with me and just let me be. This is a thank you to the person who understood I was torn and that 2 babies had been born. This a thank you to the person who visits with love and support, the kind that just can’t be taught. This is a thank you to… View Post

I’ve dusted off the laptop. I’ve dug it out from behind the sofa and stared at a blank page for a while. You see, I forgot how to do it.

I’m a bit embarrassed to say I do have the time for it to be honest but recently I have started putting it on to the to do list. No, I don’t have time for it, my to do list is longer than my arm and I could fill my day twice… View Post

With a husband that works away all week every week routines are the way I get through life especially now I have two children. If I wasn’t organised I’m not sure we would ever get out of the door in time to get Little Man to preschool. I definitely wouldn’t get them to bed at a reasonable hour if we didn’t have a bedtime routine. Little Man has had a decent bedtime routine since he was about 9 months old but when Little Lady came home it all went a bit to pot. I had to fit his bath around… View Post
